If there's a way to hex-dump the PROM on the working IPX (ideally without removing it) to duplicate it then that might work even better. I know the one PROM works fine, the other one is a couple tenths behind (2.7 versus 2.5 or something like that).

Both of these should be model 4/50's.  The motherboards have Hobbes silkscreened on.

Assuming SunOS could boot CD-Roms fine from the 2.5 PROM rev it might be nice to try to track down what the NetBSD bootloader is doing "wrong" and fix that. Its not as if the PROM revision is particular relevant once the OS has booted :)
